Golden Monkey

Black tea
Margaret's Fine Imports

Country of origin: China.

A dry earthy smell up front and a little apricot on the finish. I like it as a late morning or afternoon tea. Dry mouthfeel, smooth, and warming.

I enjoy the pretty tips. "AssamGreenTea" just told me that handcrafted Indian Assam tea can have a similar appearance to this: some golden tips and twisted strands with a wiry appearance. Thanks, AssamGreenTea!
